As we wave goodbye to 2013, our thoughts turn to what the next 12 months will hold.

2013 will be remembered as the year we said farewell to Margaret Thatcher and Nelson Mandela, hello to a Royal baby and reeled in horror at the Boston bombing.

2014 promises some truly historic dates.

Next year will bring a special milestone in the history of the Magna Carta and the role Bury St Edmunds played in that.

More poignantly, 2014 marks 100 years since the start of the Great War.

With those events on the horizon, you may think that local news will take a back seat. Nothing of the sort.

Your Bury Free Press news team will be on hand to bring you the very latest news, views, video, Tweets and Facebook updates to keep you up to speed on the things you need to know.

Have a very Happy New Year – and we’ll see you in 2014.
